Paper Girls to attend FanExpo Chicago

Three short weeks before Paper Girls, the highly anticipated adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s critically acclaimed time-traveling graphic novel series, takes Amazon Prime Video by storm, the four teenage leads, Riley Lai Nelet (Erin Tieng), Camryn Jones (Tiffany Quilkin), Sofia Rosinsky (Mac Coyle) and Fina Strazza (KJ Brandman), will make their FAN EXPO debuts, announced FAN EXPO Chicago.

On Saturday, July 9, the four stars will come together for a free Q&A panel at 1 p.m., followed by a free autograph session at 2 p.m. for the first 150 fans in attendance. In their first panel ever as a quartet, the four teens will give future viewers and comic fans a sneak peak into the time travel hijinks and mystery woven throughout the show.

Following the show’s recently-released preview, the cast has already received praise for embodying the spunk and personality of their characters: bike-riding paper girls from the 80s who time-travel to 2019, meeting their future selves along the way.
